#2421562 NHL considering ban on spin-o-rama in shootout..

Posted by Ally on 23 June 2013 - 04:48 PM

I'd be okay with 3 on 3.
I'd be even more okay with the shootout being gone entirely.

There isn't a scenario in which I would want less hockey.

#2420395 Paul MacLean won the Jack Adams

Posted by Ally on 17 June 2013 - 09:43 PM

My only problem with Maclean winning is that even if I wasn't a Wings fan I'd be saying Babs should have had it. When you consider what he lost (not just retirement but our insane injury list) and the fact that he still got the Wings to the playoffs. The fact that Q was nominated was maybe the most irritating thing about the awards this year.

#2418946 What would you give up for Malkin?

I like people acting like picking up a superstar basically guarantees us a cup.
On paper the Pens were basically an all star team and they still got swept.

I don't understand being against this.

#2417493 ECF - (4) Boston Bruins vs. (1) Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by Ally on 03 June 2013 - 09:49 PM

Pittsburgh adds 2 captains and a defenseman at the trade deadline and totally forgot that their goalies are Swiss cheese.

This is exactly what I was trying to tell everyone when they were saying "might as well just give the cup to e penguins right now" after those acquisitions. Firepower hasn't ever been their problem.

#2417121 2013 Detroit Red Wings Eulogy

Posted by Ally on 02 June 2013 - 04:13 PM

Not as funny as some of the other eulogys that have been posted. I did get a little laugh about it and I'm definitely guilty of the "how many cups have you won?" Line but that's largely due to being surrounded by Canucks fans.
I give the article a solid "meh"

#2416963 Who Do You Want to Win the Cup?

Posted by Ally on 01 June 2013 - 11:00 PM

I vote Boston because: 
1. I hate Chicago and their "fans" who think their team is a legit dynasty even though most of them can't name who was captain before Toews. 
2. I hate Pittsburgh, their fans, Crosby, Malkin, Iginla, and the homerism of NBC. 
3. I don't want another team to win back-to-back Cups unless it's the Wings. 
And the city of Boston could use some good feelings.

Exactly this. Except add Matt Cooke to reason #2.
Boston has always been my second favorite team anyway so easy choice.

Is it weird that I love Datsyuk even more for still being so terrible at English after so long?

#2414208 Fraser's take on Penalty Shot

Posted by Ally on 29 May 2013 - 02:11 AM

NBC basically seemed to say that it COULD be a penalty shot but that it shouldn't have been one which is the opinion I've seen from almost everyone.
Agreed, it's not the reason we lost but it's certainly a part of it. It's just a shame to see such inconsistent officiating. Jimmy was rattled about the call and it showed.

#2414200 Proud of our boys

Very well said. I'm so proud to be a fan. Win or lose I love this team.
(But preferably win tomorrow)

#2411251 2013 Playoff Beards!

I've been working on my playoff beard. Bring on game five!

#2410777 Red Wings don't belong in the same rink as the Hawks?

Posted by Ally on 24 May 2013 - 01:29 AM

I wish I had bothered to find this guy's twitter since I mentioned the hammer/nail analogy earlier during the game.
Funny how as the series goes along the "nail" is looking more like a railway spike.
